When he agreed to do a DirecTV commercial featuring a scene from Tommy Boy with the late Chris Farley, actor David Spade never dreamed anybody would be offended.
"Slight shock," Spade told PEOPLE on Wednesday night of the fallout from the ad, which some commentators saw as tasteless. "These commercials are cool. They're well done. They're clever. And that they would include Tommy Boy in that company, I thought was very flattering."
The 30-second spot, airing during the World Series, appears to have been taken directly from the 1995 movie, except that while Farley does his famous "Fat Guy in a Little Coat" routine, Spade, with technological wizardry, promotes DirecTV.
